March 12, 2009: Faringdon, Oxfordshire. If you run a business on your own, the idea of growth might seem daunting. If you knew how to tackle issues like employing people, writing a business plan or getting funding – would the transition seem easier?
Our Mission Growth Speaker event is designed to give you practical information and inspiration that will encourage you to consider growth as an option for your business.
Learn about how to structure your business for growth, find people for your management team, and discover what investors look for in a business plan. You will leave with more knowledge and confidence having discussed the issues with other like-minded entrepreneurs and heard from two inspiring business women.
